Filmed on 8-11-16. In the late 90's a group of investors decided to dam up the drainage water that flows from Las Vegas, and the 3 sewer treatment plants to form Lake Las Vegas. They even got the big home builders to build multi million dollar homes. Then got 3 casinos to build huge resorts around, and over the lake. Within 2 years the big housing market crash happened, and Lake Las Vegas shut doors. The main casino my son, and I filmed is the Hilton. Its almost like walking through a post popaliptic catastrophe. Billions of dollars lost.
FYI There are a few rooms you can stay the night. Very little staff, and casino is gone, and all restaurants are closed in the hotel. I have friends that were laid off just a couple weeks before its closing. I didnt show the graffiti, and all the dead bushes, and flowers. The entire place is in disrepair, and yes there are a few shops open. It is what I said semi abandoned, but its really more then semi. What tourist is going to come to Las Vegas, and stay that far from the strip with no gambling, and no open bars.
